states. today, the heritage foundation the conservative think tank here said america is no longer a free nation. it's a mostly free nation. they rank countries every year and they dropped america. so now we're living in a not so free united states according to the heritage foundation. people are picking up on this and their paranoia is really kicking in. there was a lot of anticipation about what the health care bill would do. no one is waiting to see that. they're already acting as if it was the worst-case scenario. first, we had obama, the foreigner, the guy wasn't born here, coming in and taking over the government. creating a regime as rush limbaugh calls it. now he's imposing socialism. anybody who lives in a socialist country, whether europe or any place else would be laughing at this as a notion of socialism. there is a -- this -- this has become the battle front for people who are worried about the very nature of this country. i think a lot of the worry isseisser is irrational. >> steve? >> one thing i think we've got to keep in mind, this didn't start with health care. remember

advisers. >> sean: basically when he was telling america, using the fear tactics that we faced a disaster, catastrophe unless we passed the stimulus, they basically what you are saying and this report is saying they said anything they needed to say to get the stimulus passed. is that the same on health care? is that the same on cap and tax? can we trust they are being honest with us? >> they came to the hill and said if you don't pass this stimulus unemployment is going to go way up pass 8%. you pass the stimulus it will stop unemployment from going beyond 8%. it went up to 10% and beyond we lost four millions jobs this is the reason why not a single republican voted for this, if borrowing and spending a trillion dollars which is what this adds up to, was a secret to prosperity and job creation we wouldn't have job problems, we would have full employment. we are borrowing and spending more than we have in the history of our country is an economic agenda not based on good economic policy it was about satisfying spent up spending demand that these people had in congress -- >> sean: presiden

>>> good evening from new york. the month of march we learned today not only saw america add jobs but was the best month for job creation in three years. republicans responded by asking why president obama is doing nothing about jobs. the numbers themselves are nothing spectacular on their own, but compared to the past two years they represent a seed change in the economic direction. 162,000 more americans went to work in march than did the month before. and it turns out revises figures show that january, too, had seen an increase in jobs, rather than the loss earlier reported. unemployment remains unchanged at 9.7%. speaking at a north carolina battery plant expanding at hiring new workers, president obama told employees a lottery mains to be done to bring america's economy all the way back. but we are beginning to turn the corner. >> just one year ago we were losing more than 700,000 jobs each month. but the tough measures that we took, measures that were necessary, even though sometimes they were unpopular have broken this and are helping us to climb out of this recession. we'v
that way he could just say when -- she could be the devil. she could say, i hate america. i want to destroy america. and that way they'll only be able to say, well, why do you hate gay, immigrant, black, handicapped women? >> yeah, because we all saw how effectively being a black woman insulates you from republican accusations that you hate america. so which radicals top president obama's short list? according to most reports, solicitor general elaine in a kagan, so radical she only got seven republican votes last year. federal judge diane woods' name is being mentioned. along with names outside the judiciary, michigan governor jennifer granholm. let's bring in george washington university professor jonathan turley. >> hi, keith. >> what do you think is the impact on the court of justice stevens leaving? >> for liberals, it's a very sad moment. stevens was part of what you would call the greatest generation for liberals on the court. it's like watching the passing of world war ii veterans. this was, he came at the hayday of the liberal court. he served with marshall brennan. these were gian

. and everybody in america knows it is not going to be budget neutral. >> you know, you -- one of the things i think that catches people's ear is radical. is that helpful to the kind of dialogue that should be in politics? is it helpful to republicans who still fight the image of being kind of mane old white guys? >> did you know, my life in politics, i always told people to speak testimony prattly and act boldly. i don't -- radical is not a term that i use very often to describe anything. but there's no questions, as a matter of fact, that the policies being pursued by the obama administration are the farthest left -- it has been a gigantic lurch to the left. i think that's what speaker gingrich was trying to convey. the words i would use are -- the most left wing. because that's what the truth is. >> let me ask you about something else in -- the kind of tone politics. governor mcdonnell designated april as confederate month. something his two democratic predecessors refrained from doing. caused quite a stir. particularly because the governor did not even mention slavery in this proclamation.
cameras. he's been called the toughest sheriff in america. all right, carlos, what's your serious problem with this law? >> well, first of all, i am not carpooling in arizona, i'll tell you that right now. well, the basic problem with the law is, and here's the way i see it. i'm not defending illegal aliens. i'm defending americans. i think if you pull over americans like myself because i happen to be speaking spanish in my car, or because i happen to have ten family members who look like me in my car, that's a violation of civil rights. i completely understand why officers like this law. because of course it makes it easier for them to do their job. but it will be easy to ask black kids, hey, show me your drug because you're showing saggy pants. put everybody who's white between the ages of -- hey, we've got serious killers on the look you fill the profile. this isn't right. >> larry: let's say it's midnight, sheriff. six mexican-americans are driving in a car through a street in your city. are they stopped? >> well, we're doing our crime suppression operation. you can see me being out i
in america, economics is the beginning and the end of most successful political endeavors. let's remember that arizona was the last state to approve a national holiday for martin luther king. and one of the things they did, it cost them hundreds of millions of dollars, when the african-american community across this country called for boycotts. finally, they were 50th, but they did it. they did it because they risked economics in the state of arizona. because, as you have stated, look, when the police intervene with me or with you or with anyone, it should be on the basis of our conduct. our behavior. not the country they suspect we came from and whether or not we were born here or not. that -- i'll tell you something. the criminal element, those human smugglers, the drug dealers, the rapists, those causing so much damage in arizona and across this country, they've got to be happy with this law. because what is going to happen is the eyes, the ears, that the police need so much of the community in general, so that they can combat crime, they're going to cause a division between the people
in that mine in northern china right now. rescue efforts continue tonight, as here in america, in west virginia, we face our own mine disaster and rescue effort again, as senator jay rockefeller just told us, one, that although we do not know for sure, could be the worst disaster in mining since the early 1970s. joining us now, former prosecutor of mine safety violations and a former federal mine official in the clinton administration, mr. opergard joins us by phone on short notice. thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> we were told this was an explosion. we don't know if it may have been a methane gas explosion, a coal dust explosion. what particular challenges would that pose for rescuers? what does that mean to the rescue effort? >> well, the first thing is to ensure that the rescue team members are going to be safe in performing their job. i mean, it's -- they're thrust into a chaotic situation and one that's highly volatile and dangerous. so they are risking their lives just going underground. and you want to make sure that you take all steps necessary to protect their safety. back in 197
to figure out who among them is really ready to say no, america does not need to reform wall street. president obama today took on two of the story lines republicans have advanced about the democratic bills, sometimes even before the bills were written. first the republican claim that the senate bill includes future bailouts for the banks, encouraging them to take more risks. in fact, the bill forces the banks to create a fund that would be used for liquidating banks. >> what's not legitimate is to suggest that somehow the legislation being proposed is going to encourage future taxpayer bailouts, as some have claimed. that makes for a good sound bite, but it's not factually accurate. it is not true. in fact, the system as it stands -- [ applause ] the system as it stands is what led to a series of massive costly taxpayer bailouts, and it's only with reform that we can avoid a similar outcome in the future. in other words, a vote for reform is a vote to put a stop to taxpayer-funded bailouts. that's the truth. >> president obama also addressed the other republican argument, a perenni
provides 35% of the world's supply of coal and roughly half the electricity used in america is generated by coal. that takes nearly four tons of coal a year for every man, woman and child. at the heart of the coal industry are nearly 50,000 people who work in active underground mines. what we know for sure about that is that the pay is good but the families of these miners and the miners themselves know that these jobs come with significant risks. here's national correspondent jim axelrod. >> reporter: the families who depend on the upper big branch coal mine are trying to gather their strength in the face of this disaster. >> i'm worn out. just still so sad. >> reporter: benny willingham would have been 63 years old in five weeks. he planned to retire on his birthday after 30 years in the mines and take his wife on a cruise. instead his family will now bury him. >> we lost a great man. my uncle was a great man and... >> reporter: it's a risk they've been taking for generations. the average coal miner here makes $73,000, more than double the wage of other industries in west virginia. >>
've been talking about tough choices. amy holmes is co-host of "america's morning news." do we have to stop playing global cop and start talking about cuts in defense? >> those are two different questions. there's the foreign policy question in terms of where do we deploy our troops to confront and face what conflicts? 77 senators voted to give george bush the authorization to go into iraq. people tend to forget. in terms of looking at defense spending, everything is on the table. reviewing all our defense programs. under george bush, secretary don rumsfeld did try to change the nature of our spending and nature of our forces, more small tactical things. not the large standing armies you saw with world war ii. everybody across the board or at this panel, anyway, can agree we want to cut out waste, fraud and abuse and want effective military. >> we talk about cutting out waste, fraud and abuse whether in health care or social security and medicare, whether in the military and defense, i think american people say i don't trust what these bureaucracies will be able to cut the waste and not the

aired a special about america's debt called "iousa." >> in the the fall of 2008, the critically acclaimed documentary film "i.o.u.s.a." was released in theaters nationwide. the film warned of america's rapidly growing national debt and its implications for the country. no one could have predicted how much worse the situation would become in just 19 months. >> not everyone agrees with the program's assessment of this country's debt. dean baker is one who disagrees here. he is with the center for economic and policy research, and he joins us from washington right now. dean, thank you for joining us. i want to start with the question, why is this documentary controversial, in your perspective? >> well, let's start with the segment you just showed. it said no one could predict that the situation would get so much worse in the next 19 months. that is not true. i was out there warning about the housing bubble saying when that collapsed it would bring down the economy and create all sorts of really bad problems. one of them, large deficit, but that the least of it. 10% unemployment is
